Trump got us out of the nuclear deal with Iran. He claimed that the Iranians were still actively expanding their ballistic missile program and expanding their negative influence in the region. Trump had intended to form a new deal with Iran during his second term, and do so from a position of strength. So Iran celebrated when Biden became the president. But now with the Afghanistan blunder highlighting our weak leadership, Iran has been acting up, and they are not even hiding the fact that they are building up their uranium supply to a level that implies they are about to start building nukes.
“The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said in reports this week to member states that it was “deeply concerned” about what the Islamic Republic of Iran was doing with its nuclear program as it continues to expand its stockpile of highly enriched uranium that could be used to build a nuclear weapon.
The two reports highlighted several areas where officials had serious cause for concern, including that Iran has failed to explain to the IAEA the presence of nuclear material at undeclared sites, that some cameras that are supposed to monitor Iran’s nuclear activities have been damaged or destroyed, and that Iran’s stockpile of highly enriched uranium has increased.”
“The agency said it estimates Iran’s stock of uranium enriched to up to 60% fissile purity at 10 kilograms, an increase of 7.6 kilograms since May, while the country’s stockpile of uranium enriched to up to 20% fissile purity is now estimated at 84.3 kilograms, up from 62.8 kilograms three months earlier.
Iran’s total stock of uranium is estimated at 2,441.3 kilograms as of Aug. 30, down from 3241 kilograms on May 22, the agency said.
Tehran is only permitted to stockpile 202.8 kilograms of uranium under the nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, which promises Iran economic incentives in exchange for limits on its nuclear program, and is meant to prevent Tehran from developing a nuclear bomb.”
Biden has been pandering hard. He has disabled anti-air defenses in allied countries and it appears he is practically begging to get back in the deal. But Iran’s actions read loud and clear, they are not interested in peace and they have not been upholding their end for years now.
